My heart's skipping, skipping and I don't know why
Why is this album called Hands? It's all very "they're not yours, they are my own" isn't it? Anyway, back to LB: the album was recorded in LA with Greg Kurstin, who just had a big hit with Lily Allen's record. It has a poppy sheen from the few songs I've heard. AND it has the presence of Human League's Phil Oakey on Symmetry. Interestingly, the American EP (out in June) contains a fantastic single-worthy exclusive track called Not Now. US peoples can read my review of that in the June Instinct.
Is she worthy of the hype (and now, if you read PopJustice Forums, the backlash)?
